GOING INTO HOSPITAL?
Waiting to go into hospital? Do please let your parish priest know in plenty of time. He will be pleased to celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick with you or any pastoral support you need. The small team of parish priests who currently provide 24/7 emergency cover in the Cardiff hospitals are under a great deal of pressure, so unfortunately there is no guarantee that one will always be available at any particular time. On the same theme, if you know of any Catholic already in hospital who needs or might like a visit or sacramental support, please continue to leave details with the Cardiff & Vale Hospital Chaplaincy on 029 2074 3230.

FROM FR. TONY
Further to my message of last Sunday, I’ll be having major surgery on 10th October here at UHW. After recuperation, I expect to move to the East Midlands to take on lighter duties. Our Provincial, Fr Joe O’Reilly, wishes to assure you that a new parish priest will be appointed sometime in September. Thank you for your prayerful support and let’s take as our own the saying which expresses Blessed Antonio Rosmini’s abandonment to Divine Providence; “Adore. Be Silent. Rejoice”.
